Surviving the Applewhites


Surviving the Applewhites by Stephanie S. Tolan

This book centers around Jake a 13 year old troublemaker who finds himself at the unconventional school on the Applewhites farm. As Jake stays there, he learns the value of respect and acceptance not only of others but of himself as well. This is a good book that unobtrusively sends the message of finding and accepting oneself. I read this when I was 15 and enjoyed it (I am now 23). My 11 year old sister just read it and loved it. This book is an easy read for the older kids, but still a story worth reading. The younger kids will enjoy the story as well. There is a reason this book won a Newbery Honor!
